Learn how an impressive reduction of biofilm without conventional biocide treatment could be achieved in an RO plant of a pulp and paper mill. Thanks to Kuriverter® IK-110 the working conditions of the plant improved.
JM Farm Pond Water Case Study
JM Farms, located in Kentucky, had been experiencing significant buildup of biofilm and slime in the water system. The biofilm and slime buildup led to water with a poor taste and odor, decreased water and feed consumption, longer flock cycles and fewer-than-expected head sold, which resulted lower revenue for the farm. Understanding the impact that better treated water can have on the key metrics impacting JM Farms, Silver Bullet Water Treatment partnered with the farm to develop a custom Green Chemistry...
Long Lake Colony Case Study
Long Lake Colony Farm is an 1,800-head swine operation located in Wetonka, South Dakota that uses a 25,000 gallon per day capacity well-water system. Preliminary testing of the system showed elevated bacteria levels in the farm’s water. The water quality also contributed to clogged water lines in the animal drinking system. The bacteria and water line issues resulted in strep problems in the barns, scours outbreaks, lower than expected breeding production, and below ideal animal weight in the farrowing...
Mixing for Better denitrification with less energy - Case study
Achieving simultaneous nitrification & denitrification in the same basinTopics: mixing, wastewater, activated sludge, energy savings, nitrification, denitrificationSystem Overview: This basin is part of an activated sludge treatment plant serving 17,000 residents with an average influent of five (5) million gallons per day.Basin Build Information: Volume: 4 million gallons Type: Aeration Basin Dimensions (ft.): 370 X 37.5 Depth (ft.): 11.5 Pre-Deployment Conditions: The anoxic portion of the basin...
Wastewater Poses Threat to Coral Reefs Worldwide
In the Caribbean, a large percentage of sewage enters ocean untreated Coral reefs contain among the most diverse ecosystems on Earth, serving as habitat and shelter for marine life and as the source of nitrogen and other essential nutrients for marine food chains. They help with carbon fixing, nitrogen fixing, and nutrient recycling, while they preserve coastlines from constant battering from waves and storms. The fishing industry relies heavily on reefs because many fish spawn and grow there before braving...
Biofilm Enables Streamlining of Wastewater Treatment
Simultaneous nitrification and denitrification means wastewater treatment can take place in a single tank A membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) is a revolutionary wastewater treatment and reuse solution that cuts the energy requirements of the aeration cycle by as much as 90% compared to legacy activated sludge systems, for which aeration is by far the largest energy expense. Its low energy requirement allows MABR to be operated by alternative energy sources, making it ideal for distributed, or decentralized,...
